Exclude In Datapump Not Working

Hi I want to Exclude Tablespace From Exporting.I have given this command below and found its not excluding the objects in that tablespaces. Please Help
expdp sys/123 directory=exp dumpfile=file.dmp logfile=file.log full=y exclude=tablespace:"IN('TS_SEARCH_D')"

I want to Exclude Tablespace From Exporting.Can you be little more clear with your requirements.Export is a way of taking backup logically.You can excludes tables,indexes,grants etc. (database objects), not the tablespace.

    I have few UP policies
    Now if I need to edit them, it should be as easy as few clicks & be done

    No matter what attribute I select if I click OK it never adds to the list,

  • OGG : DataPump not working:Bidirectional Replication-Oracle to oracle

    Hi Experts,
    Iam try to build a Bidirectional Replication Oracle 11gr2 DB to Oracle 11gr2 DB.
    Could do replication sucessfully from A TO B but not able to do it from B TO A.
    All the process are running and could not find any errors.Seems data pump is not able to send the data to destination.

  • Exclude unreferenced topics and Baggage not working

    I am having a problem with the Exclude unreferenced topics and Baggage features not working.  Meaning when I do a search all topics display even though they are not in the TOC.
    I even did a simple test.
    I created a new TOC with only one topic. 
    Created a new BLANK topic.
    Created a new WebHelp SSL
    Used the new TOC and selected both Exclude options.
    Generated the SSL and created a test search using a common word in the other topics.
    Results: Many topics list.
    So I thought maybe there is something funky with my project.
    I opened a RH Sample and had the same result.
    Help!  I need to get this done today, what am I missing?
    Using RH10

    Colum is correct so it follows that the one thing that will find an unreferenced topic is a search. I have just tested what you report and Rh10 is incorrectly including unreferenced topics in the build.
    Please follow this link.

  • Configure exclude for tablespace does not work.

    I have to exclude a tablespace from my full database backups. I have Level-1 and Level-0 backup script.
    run the following command as per documentation.
    To reconfirm, if exclude is set.
    run SHOW ALL;
    it shows that exclude is set properly.
    Now i have to restore on another machine and before running the restore i run
    RESTORE DATABASE PREVIEW, just to confirm if backup health is ok.
    it gives me error

    RMAN-06023: no backup or copy of datafile 10 found to restore
    The datafile 10 mentioned in the above error is the 'DATA_TEMP' tablespace which was excluded before taking the backup.
    Restoring the database with RESTORE DATABASE command goes fine and restores the tablespace "DATA_TEMP".
    My question is why RMAN have backuped up a tablespace which is in the exclusion list. i think rman reads its environment settings before starting a backup.
    Have any one have experienced this before. the documentation says nothing about this.

    The above command workd fine in

  • 'SET PF-STATUS EXCLUDING fcode' not working in Selection Screen event

  • EXCLUDEUSER is not working

    ogg: Version
    For some reason which I can't figure out my TRANLOGOPTIONS EXCLUDEUSER <USER> is not working. Could anyone shed some light on this?
    Extract settings:
    EXTRACT ext1
    EXTTRAIL /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/ogg/dirdat/lc
    TABLE schema1.test;
    TABLE schema2.*;What am I missing? Im getting the replicat to fail everytime due to unique constraint violation on the table schema1.test (It is the only table where I have bi-directional replication configured) . Both source and extract target are excluding GGS user.
    Thanks in Advance

    I don't understand what excluding your GoldenGate user has to do with a constraint violation on another schema's table. You are trying to insert something that already exists (or perhaps update something to an already existing value, which is constrained by a unique constraint). Your problem is with the data between the two tables (on source and target). This has zip to do with excluding your GoldenGate user. All that does is prevent the DML from being ping-ponged back and forth. The exclude will ignore what is done on the end where DML is taking place from a replicat's operation. The insert/update that is failing is legitimate DML that is failing. Had it been successful, the exclude option would prevent that insert/update from being sent back to where it occurred in the first place.Actually Steven that is what is happenning. I have table test1 on both nodes. So I make an insert on node 1 it gets captured and replicated to node 2 and then from there it gets captured and sent back to node1 where REPLICAT fails with UQ Constraint violation on test1 table. Using the discardfile i can see it is the very same row I just inserted, hence my excludeuser is not working on node 2.
    What else could be the reason for this behaviour if not excludeuser not working?

  • Issue with spamassassin, now mail not working

    Hi ! I installed spamtrainer almost two months ago. Been feeding the [email protected] for several weeks now , 700 emails each day at least .
    There was very little improvement if none at all. Tried to add "@local_domains_maps = (1)" to amavisd.conf last night thinking it might be the problem , though no virtual domain exist. This was one of the issue on the default Amavisd config. The other one is adding the symbolic link which I already done.
    Computer froze while adding the parameter "@local_domains_maps = (1)", so I manually turn off the Power Mac, then mail stopped altogether. The mails are filing up but the clients couldn't send or receive since this incidence .
    FF is the maincf. and amavis.conf

    # This file is a normal Perl code, interpreted by Perl itself.
    # - make sure this file (or directory where it resides) is NOT WRITABLE
    # by mere mortals, otherwise it represents a severe security risk!
    # - for values which are interpreted as booleans, it is recommended
    # to use 1 for true, and 0 or undef or '' for false.
    # THIS IS DIFFERENT FROM OLDER AMAVIS VERSIONS where "no" also meant false,
    # now it means true, like any nonempty string does!
    # - Perl syntax applies. Most notably: strings in "" may include variables
    # (which start with $ or @); to include characters @ and $ in double
    # quoted strings, precede them by a backslash; in single-quoted strings
    # the $ and @ lose their special meaning, so it is usually easier to use
    # single quoted strings. Still, in both cases a backslash need to be doubled
    # - variables with names starting with a '@' are lists, the values assigned
    # to them should be lists as well, e.g. ('[email protected]', $mydomain, "three");
    # note the comma-separation and parenthesis. If strings in the list
    # do not contain spaces nor variables, a Perl operator qw() may be used
    # as a shorthand to split its argument on whitespace and produce a list
    # of strings, e.g. qw( [email protected] example.com three ); Note that the argument
    # to qw is quoted implicitly and no variable interpretation is done within
    # (no '$' variable evaluations). The #-initiated comments can not be used
    # within the string. In other words, $ and # lose their special meaning
    # withing a qw argument, just like within '...' strings.
    # - all e-mail addresses in this file and as used internally by the daemon
    # are in their raw (rfc2821-unquoted and nonbracketed) form, i.e.

    # Here is an overall picture (sequence of events) of how pieces fit together
    # (only virus controls are shown, spam controls work the same way):
    # bypass_virus_checks set for all recipients? ==> PASS
    # no viruses? ==> PASS
    # log virus if $log_templ is nonempty
    # quarantine if $virus_quarantine_to is nonempty
    # notify admin if $virus_admin (lookup) nonempty
    # notify recips if $warnvirusrecip and (recipient is local or $warn_offsite)
    # add address extensions for local recipients (when enabled)
    # send (non-)delivery notifications
    # to sender if DSN needed (BOUNCE) or ($warnvirussender and D_PASS)
    # virus_lovers or final_destiny==D_PASS ==> PASS
    # DISCARD (2xx) or REJECT (5xx) (depending on final_*_destiny)
    # Equivalent flow diagram applies for spam checks.
    # If a virus is detected, spam checking is skipped entirely.
    # The following symbolic constants can be used in *destiny settings:
    # D_PASS mail will pass to recipients, regardless of bad contents;
    # D_DISCARD mail will not be delivered to its recipients, sender will NOT be
    # notified. Effectively we lose mail (but will be quarantined
    # unless disabled). Not a decent thing to do for a mailer.
    # D_BOUNCE mail will not be delivered to its recipients, a non-delivery
    # notification (bounce) will be sent to the sender by amavisd-new;
    # Exception: bounce (DSN) will not be sent if a virus name matches
    # $viruses_that_fake_sender_re, or to messages from mailing lists
    # (Precedence: bulk|list|junk);
    # D_REJECT mail will not be delivered to its recipients, sender should
    # preferably get a reject, e.g. SMTP permanent reject response
    # (e.g. with milter), or non-delivery notification from MTA
    # (e.g. Postfix). If this is not possible (e.g. different recipients
    # have different tolerances to bad mail contents and not using LMTP)
    # amavisd-new sends a bounce by itself (same as D_BOUNCE).
    # Notes:
    # D_REJECT and D_BOUNCE are similar, the difference is in who is responsible
    # for informing the sender about non-delivery, and how informative
    # the notification can be (amavisd-new knows more than MTA);
    # With D_REJECT, MTA may reject original SMTP, or send DSN (delivery status
    # notification, colloquially called 'bounce') - depending on MTA;
    # Best suited for sendmail milter, especially for spam.
    # With D_BOUNCE, amavisd-new (not MTA) sends DSN (can better explain the
    # reason for mail non-delivery, but unable to reject the original
    # SMTP session). Best suited to reporting viruses, and for Postfix
    # and other dual-MTA setups, which can't reject original client SMTP
    # session, as the mail has already been enqueued.

    $final_bad_header_destiny = D_PASS; # (defaults to D_PASS), D_BOUNCE suggested
    # Alternatives to consider for spam:
    # - use D_PASS if clients will do filtering based on inserted mail headers;
    # - use D_DISCARD, if kill_level is set safely high;
    # - use D_BOUNCE instead of D_REJECT if not using milter;
    # There are no sensible alternatives to D_BOUNCE for viruses, but consider:
    # - use D_PASS (or virus_lovers) and $warnvirussender=1 to deliver viruses;
    # - use D_REJECT instead of D_BOUNCE if using milter and under heavy
    # virus storm;
    # Don't bother to set both D_DISCARD and $warn*sender=1, it will get mapped
    # to D_BOUNCE.
    # The separation of *_destiny values into D_BOUNCE, D_REJECT, D_DISCARD
    # and D_PASS made settings $warnvirussender and $warnspamsender only still
    # useful with D_PASS.

    # VARIANT 1:
    # empty or undef disables quarantine;
    # VARIANT 2:
    # a string NOT containg an '@';
    # amavisd will behave as a local delivery agent (LDA) and will quarantine
    # viruses to local files according to hash %local_delivery_aliases (pseudo
    # aliases map) - see subroutine mail_to_local_mailbox() for details.
    # Some of the predefined aliases are 'virus-quarantine' and 'spam-quarantine'.
    # Setting $virus_quarantine_to ($spam_quarantine_to) to this string will:
    # * if $QUARANTINEDIR is a directory, each quarantined virus will go
    # to a separate file in the $QUARANTINEDIR directory (traditional
    # amavis style, similar to maildir mailbox format);
    # * otherwise $QUARANTINEDIR is treated as a file name of a Unix-style
    # mailbox. All quarantined messages will be appended to this file.
    # Amavisd child process must obtain an exclusive lock on the file during
    # delivery, so this may be less efficient than using individual files
    # or forwarding to MTA, and it may not work across NFS or other non-local
    # file systems (but may be handy for pickup of quarantined files via IMAP
    # for example);
    # VARIANT 3:
    # any email address (must contain '@').
    # The e-mail messages to be quarantined will be handed to MTA
    # for delivery to the specified address. If a recipient address local to MTA
    # is desired, you may leave the domain part empty, e.g. '[email protected]', but the
    # '@' character must nevertheless be included to distinguish it from variant 2.
    # This method enables more refined delivery control made available by MTA
    # (e.g. its aliases file, other local delivery agents, dealing with
    # privileges and file locking when delivering to user's mailbox, nonlocal
    # delivery and forwarding, fan-out lists). Make sure the mail-to-be-quarantined

    # lookup tables:
    # (this is mainly a time-saving option, unlike virus_lovers* !)
    # Similar in concept to %virus_lovers, a hash %bypass_virus_checks,
    # access list @bypass_virus_checks_acl and regexp list $bypass_virus_checks_re

    # but only if ALL recipients match the lookup.

    # do NOT GUARANTEE the message will NOT be checked for viruses - this may
    # still happen when there is more than one recipient for a message, and
    # not all of them match these lookup tables. To guarantee virus delivery,
    # a recipient must also match %virus_lovers/@virus_lovers_acl lookups
    # (but see milter limitations above),
    # NOTE: it would not be clever to base virus checks on SENDER address,
    # since there are no guarantees that it is genuine. Many viruses
    # and spam messages fake sender address. To achieve selective filtering
    # based on the source of the mail (e.g. IP address, MTA port number, ...),
    # use mechanisms provided by MTA if available.
    # Similar to lookup tables controlling virus checking, there exist

    # %banned_files_lovers, @banned_files_lovers_acl, $banned_files_lovers_re
    # %bad_header_lovers, @bad_header_lovers_acl, $bad_header_lovers_re

    # %bypass_spam_checks/@bypass_spam_checks_acl/$bypass_spam_checks_re
    # %bypass_banned_checks/@bypass_banned_checks_acl/$bypass_banned_checks_re
    # %bypass_header_checks/@bypass_header_checks_acl/$bypass_header_checks_re

    # The SQL select clause to fetch per-recipient policy settings.
    # The %k will be replaced by a comma-separated list of query addresses

    # If field names are not unique (e.g. 'id'), the later field overwrites the

    # No need to uncomment the following assignment if the default is ok.

    # If you decide to pass viruses (or spam) to certain recipients using the
    # above lookup tables or using $final_virus_destiny=1, you can set

    # appending address extensions. Setting has no effect on recipient which will
    # not be receiving viruses/spam. Recipients who do not match lookup tables
    # local_domains* are not affected.
    # LDAs usually default to stripping away address extension if no special

    # WHITELISTING: use ENVELOPE SENDER lookups to ENSURE DELIVERY from whitelisted

    # BLACKLISTING: messages from specified SENDERS are DECLARED SPAM.
    # Effectively, for messages from blacklisted senders, spam level
    # is artificially pushed high, and the normal spam processing applies,
    # resulting in 'X-Spam-Flag: YES', high 'X-Spam-Level' bar and other usual
    # reactions to spam, including possible rejection. If the message nevertheless
    # still passes (e.g. for spam loving recipients), it is tagged as BLACKLISTED
    # in the 'X-Spam-Status' header field, but the reported spam value and
    # set of tests in this report header field (if available from SpamAssassin,
    # which may have not been called) is not adjusted.
    # A sender may be both white- and blacklisted at the same time,
    # settings are independent. For example, being both white- and blacklisted,
    # message is delivered to recipients, but is tagged as spam.
    # If ALL recipients of the message either white- or blacklist the sender,
    # spam scanning (calling the SpamAssassin) is bypassed, saving on time.

    # find_external_programs(), which will try to find the full program

    # Besides a simple string (full program path name or just the basename
    # to be looked for in PATH), this may be an array ref of alternative
    # program names or full paths - the first match in the list will be used;
    # As a special case for more complex scanners, this field may be
    # a subroutine reference, and the whole n-tuple is passed to it as args.
    # 3. command arguments to be given to the scanner program;
    # a substring {} will be replaced by the directory name to be scanned,
    # i.e. "$tempdir/parts"
    # 4. an array ref of av scanner exit status values, or a regexp (to be
    # matched against scanner output), indicating NO VIRUSES found;
    # 5. an array ref of av scanner exit status values, or a regexp (to be
    # matched against scanner output), indicating VIRUSES WERE FOUND;
    # Note: the virus match prevails over a 'not found' match, so it is safe
    # even if 4. matches for viruses too;
    # 6. a regexp (to be matched against scanner output), returning a list
    # of virus names found.
    # 7. and 8.: (optional) subroutines to be executed before and after scanner
    # (e.g. to set environment or current directory);
    # see examples for these at KasperskyLab AVP and Sophos sweep.
    # NOTES:
    # - NOT DEFINING @av_scanners (e.g. setting it to empty list, or deleting the
    # (which can be handy if all you want to do is spam scanning);
    # - the order matters: although _all_ available entries from the list are
    # always tried regardless of their verdict, scanners are run in the order
    # specified: the report from the first one detecting a virus will be used
    # (providing virus names and scanner output); REARRANGE THE ORDER TO WILL;
    # - it doesn't hurt to keep an unused command line scanner entry in the list
    # if the program can not be found; the path search is only performed once
    # during the program startup;
    # CORROLARY: to disable a scanner that _does_ exist on your system,
    # comment out its entry or use undef or '' as its program name/path
    # (second parameter). An example where this is almost a must: disable
    # Sophos 'sweep' if you have its daemonized version Sophie or SAVI-Perl
    # (same for Trophie/vscan, and clamd/clamscan), or if another unrelated
    # program happens to have a name matching one of the entries ('sweep'
    # again comes to mind);
    # - it DOES HURT to keep unwanted entries which use INTERNAL SUBROUTINES
    # for interfacing (where the second parameter starts with \&).
    # Keeping such entry and not having a corresponding virus scanner daemon
    # causes an unnecessary connection attempt (which eventually times out,
    # but it wastes precious time). For this reason the daemonized entries
    # are commented in the distribution - just remove the '#' where needed.

    You are welcome. I'm glad you got it back up.
    (1) You say you did the symbolic link. I will assume this is set correctly; it's very important that it is.
    (2) I don't know what you mean by "Been feeding the [email protected] for several weeks now, 700 emails each day at least." After the initial training period, SpamAssassin doesn't learn from mail it has already processed correctly. At this point, you only need to teach SpamAssassin when it is wrong. [email protected] should only be getting spam that is being passed as clean. Likewise, [email protected] should only be getting legitimate mail that is being flagged as junk. You are redirecting mail to both [email protected] and [email protected] ... right? SpamAssassin needs both.
    (3) Next, as I said before, you need to implement those "Frontline spam defense for Mac OS X Server." Once you have that done and issue "postfix reload" you can look at your SMTP log in Server Admin and watch as Postfix blocks one piece of junk mail after another. It's kind of cool.
    (4) Add some SARE rules:
    Visit http://www.rulesemporium.com/rules.htm and download the following rules:
    Visit http://www.rulesemporium.com/other-rules.htm and download the following rules:
    Copy these rules to /etc/mail/spamassassin/
    Then stop and restart mail services.
    There are other things you can do, and you'll find differing opinions about such things. In general, I think implementing the "Frontline spam defense for Mac OS X Server" and adding the SARE rules will help a lot. Good luck!

  • "Delete All Backups" command not working...

    I just started using Time Machine for the first time about a month ago with my new MacBook Pro. Recently, it started notifying me that it was out of space and automatically deleting the oldest backups, which I thought was odd, because my external Time Machine backup partition is 500GB and my startup disk only had 150GB of data (on a 260GB partition). Well, after checking the backups I quickly found the problem. I have three partitions on my internal drive, and Time Machine was backing them all up (I had thought Time Machine would only back up my startup disk). So I added the other two partitions to the "disks to Exclude list". That part worked and my new backups only include my startup drive. But I want to get rid of the all the backups of my other partitions, so I opened up Time Machine and tried to manually delete their backups, but it's not working.
    I've read that you can select the volumes/folders and choose the "Delete all backups of ..." option to remove them. I also read that it should take some time to complete this. But it's been over 24 hours and still it hasn't removed any of the backups I want to get rid of. And there seems to be no activity on the Time Machine drive. So what gives? Why isn't Time Machine honoring my request to delete all backups of these partitions/folders? I've repeated the process a few times, and each time the authentication dialog appears and my password is accepted, so everything looks like it should work, but it hasn't.
    My first thought was that maybe Time Machine won't delete the backup of a folder/partition that it's already excluding. So I turned off automatic Time Machine backups, and removed the two partition volumes from my exclude list and then tried again to delete all their backups. It's been a few hours since then, and still nothing is deleting. How long should it take? And is there some trick to manually deleting the backups outside of Time Machine that I could try?
    I guess if nothing else I could try and reformat the Time Machine backup disk and start over, but I shouldn't have to right? This is really puzzling...

    Yes, It appears that Time Machine CANNOT delete files that are locked for some reason.
    that's not true. it's perfectly capable of doing that.
    Originally I assumed that since I could not delete a file directly from within the Time Machine volume's "Backups.backupdb" subfolders, that I would not be able to unlock it. But you can! I simply located the files in the backup, chose Get Info on them and un-checked their "Locked" checkbox.
    something is really wrong with your backups. you should not even be able to unlock any locked files in TM backups as they should be all protected by hidden ACLs to prevent people from messing with them from finder.
    And the lock status change took effect! Then went back to Time Machine and chose "Delete All Backups of..." and selected the volume in that backup, and they instantly disappeared!!!
    That's pretty strong empirical proof that Time Machine has a problem with locked files.
    no, it's a strong evidence that your TM backups are messed up.
    I have repeated it with about a dozen various files that were locked and all behaved the exact same way. So I think this is pretty strong evidence to a "bug" in Time Machine!

  • Formula not working in report

    In one of the report, there is a formula added as
    v_Hide:= If [v_ResourceSum]=0 And v_CTier="Not Alighned" and IsNull([v_LatestAnalystCycle]) then "Hide" Else "".
    Then this filter is added on the report to exclude when v_Hide="Hide"
    This formula is not working.
    Using BO 4.0

    Hi Pritesh,
    once the field V_HIDE got populated.
    Modify the internal table with the field value.
    You can use the below statement to filter the contents of the internal table.
    Delete <internal_table> where v_hide IS NOT INITIAL.

  • Search not working

    well, not working like Tiger used to I should say. I used to be able to open the Hard Drive as a finder window, I could then type in what I was looking for in the Search window in the upper right hand corner. Leopard seems to work but I just put a file in the Hard Drive randomly and then tried to find it under "This Mac", "HD" and came up with no results.
    Am I supposed to do it differently now? I tried the Search under the Help pull down but that's useless.

    Do note that Spotlight excludes some places when you search—it's different from Tiger's implementation. Start with http://www.pinkmutant.com/articles/Leopard/leospot.html and my mod to Finder's Find at http://discussions.apple.com/message.jspa?messageID=6725932 for what you can change so you can find stuff.
